    Back with another dumb question ...

    :cry: Dumb question 10 million and one -- When a console tty (i.e. tty03 ) freezes, how does one go about resetting it to function once again without a reboot?

    TIA
    Everything I learn gives me another way to say \"OOPS!\" :oops:

    you can restart your x server by hitting Ctrl-Alt-Backspace . its not technically a reboot.

    Doesn't work on the plain vanilla mingetty 'F-Key-1, 3, 4' and so on console terminals of SuSe Linux 8.1.

    Thanks anyway.

    Anyone else?

    Hmmm

    You could try to

    Example in the console
    ------------ -------------------
    ps -A
    This command will list all processes that are currently running.

    Looks like this
    -------------------
    bash-3.00# ps -A
    PID TTY TIME CMD
    461 tty1 00:00:00 bash
    463 tty2 00:00:00 agetty
    464 tty3 00:00:00 agetty
    465 tty4 00:00:00 agetty
    467 tty5 00:00:00 agetty
    468 tty6 00:00:00 agetty


    Then just find the process that has locked up and

    kill 464

    So we have now killed tty3

    Console stuff ...

    Thank you comtux. I could then go to /sbin and restart the getty or, will the O/S daemons do that :?:

    Am sure that when you ctrl F3 agetty should take care of the request as your not actualy killing agetty.
    But then again i could be wrong as i havent actualy tested this my self.
    but as soon as i am done building kdegraphics from source ill try it and if all fails ill search for a sure thing soluton for ya.

    Everytime that I see a "help me" forum post, I know that Comtux has already answered the problem before I get there.
